umm you have a honda 1.6 liter. no such thing as easy and cheap. weight reduction and ebay intakes the only "cheap" mods you can do on a honda. i recommend getting cams and ecu flash. you'll see more gains from that than you will from i/h/e

I'll go for Intake, if i put a FPR on an stock n/a B16a motor will i get some better performance ? In my opinion i'll be getting east and quick Revs. ( correct me if i m wrong, i m not so sure about it )

Regards.

no you'll just run rich. the only noticeable performance gain you'll get on that motor n/a is cams and an intake. you won't even really pick up any nice hp from a header or exhaust. exhausts don't do much on hondas and neither do intakes unless it's a k20 or an h22a. you wan't balanced hp not peak numbers. and tuning is the most important. turning up you're fuel pressure on a stock setup is just a waste of money and gas

there is a 2 part equation to going faster. you need better parts in the motor and you need to have the motor tuned to take advantage of those parts. in other words fuel maps, timing, injector pulsewidth etc. it's all done in the ecu. you can't just slap on better parts and expect to pick up power. you can actually make your car run worse than stock if you go really extreme with parts and don't get the car tuned. it's a system to go faster, not just improve one part and leave the others stock. i

if you want to to run stock and efficient, then leave it stock. and no just don't advance your timing. do weight reduction. it's the only mod that won't affect reliability
